        Batavorum cum Romanis Bellum.

      Antwerp, Philip Lisaert, 1612 - Oblong 4to. 36 numbered engraved plates by Antonio Tempesta after Vaenius. 18th century mottled calf, gilt; spine neatly restored. A series of allegorical engravings illustrating the armed struggle between the ancient Dutch tribes and their Roman oppressors inspired by Tacitus's history. Each plate bears an engraved legend below in Flemish and and in Latin; a detailed explanation is printed on the otherwise blank verso. This historicist work, very popular in its time, was achieved by two great artists: the designer, Otto Vaenius (Otto van Veen 1556-1629), court painter to Alessandro Farnese, was influenced by the Italian mannerists but had developed his own style anticipating the Flemish baroque of his pupil Peter Paul Rubens; the engraver, Antonio Tempesta (1555-1630), specialized in battle scenes. Plate I, signed 'Ant.Tempesta f. Anno 1611', shows 'Roma' and 'Batavia' in battle dress with respective scenic backgrounds, symbolizing the two nations; 15 other plates bear Tempesta's monogramme. The plates depict heroic events, sieges, and battle scenes. A good copy with an English 18th century provenance in top blank margin of title with manuscript entries 'Given by J[oh]n Greenwood' and 'J[oh]n Williams 1742'; English armorial bookplate with crested crown and motto 'In domino confido'. Funck 404; for the artists see Thieme-Becker XXXIV, 176 & XXXII, 516-17. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Reinier Nooms (genaamd Zeeman) etsen.

      Complete serie van 8 etsen uit 1612, 1e staat, in de plaat gesigneerd. Afm. (prenten): elk ca. 12 x 21 cm. Als set in 1 lijst.Reinier Nooms - genaamd "Zeeman" (ca. 1623 - Amsterdam- 1664), was naast veelgevraagd tekenaar en vermaard marineschilder ook een begaafd etser. Dit werk neemt dan ook binnen zijn oeuvre een aparte plaats in. Van in totaal 154 etsen zijn sommige uitgegeven als losse exemplaren, de meeste echter behoren tot series van telkens acht of twaalf prenten, die als een reeks bijeengebonden werden verkocht aan liefhebbers en collectioneurs.Het werk van de Nooms als etser, staat op eenzame hoogte in de 17e-eeuw. Het is tekeningachtig en spontaan en veel meer dan een portret van schepen. Nooms stoffeerde zijn etsen met schitterende figuurtjes en atmosferische luchten. Ze roepen een prachtig beeld op van het dagelijks leven op en rond het water in de Gouden Eeuw. Amsterdam was toentertijd het centrum van de wereldhandel en dit aspect werd door Nooms verheven tot het belangrijkste thema in zijn prenten.Prijs: € 4.950,- (incl. lijst, incl. 21% BTW).

        A Discoverie of the True Causes Why Ireland Was Never Entirely Subdued, Nor Brought Under Obedience of the Crowne of England, Untill the Beginning of His Majesties Happie Raigne

      [4], 1-186, 189-287pp, [1], Later full calf, raised bands, spine in six panels, title label to second panel, remaining panels with central lozenge shaped tool in gilt, covers with double fillet gilt border. Recently rebacked to style. Minor rubbing to extremities. Text block slightly cropped at head. Internally some minor browning and staining, but generally fairly bright. Lacks A1, which is blank apart from the signature letter 'A' to foot, small flaw to title catching fore-edge, with an ink number '3' to title, the head of G1 has '35 comes after 50' in ink (a legacy of signature G being bound before F - now rectified), the final page is blank (sometimes found with errata). Sir John Davies, "firmly believed that the successful government of Ireland could not be achieved through military conquest alone, but depended instead on laying the legal foundations for a civil society ... From 1606 he was busy with the management of the work deriving from the establishment of the commissions for defective titles and the implementation of arrangements for the surrender and regrant of lands by tenants of the crown. This was a crucial element in his long-standing campaign to entrench the full-scale operation of property law in Ireland as the bulwark of English rule, and was designed specifically to undermine and finally to abolish Gaelic para-legal forms of land tenure and inheritance which were much more fluid, based on kinship and the sept, and the tribal allegiances underpinning them ... Davies was long absorbed in the establishment of the new plantation ... In all he obtained 5500 acres ... In 1612 he published his 'Discoverie of the True Causes Why Ireland was Never Entirely Subdued nor brought under obedience of the crown of England until his Majesties Happie Reigne', which argued for the full establishment of a system of law based on land rather than blood" (ODNB) It was this use of the law which apparently brought Ireland "back within the fold of civilization" (Oxford History of the Irish Book, Volume III, page 254)

        Indiae Orientalis, insularumque adiacentium typus.

      1612. Incisione in rame, coloritura d'epoca, mm 355x500 tratta da "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", opera che ebbe un successo immediato e numerosissime riedizioni. Il "Theatrum" è considerato il primo atlante moderno, comprendente carte di tutte le zone del mondo; la geniale intuizione di Abraham Ortel (1528-1598), che latinizzò il proprio nome in Ortelius, fu quella di riunire in un unico corpus la produzione cartografica eterogenea del periodo, costituendo la base per un'impresa editoriale di enorme successo, pubblicata dal 1570 al 1612. Di grande livello decorativo la carta riporta informazioni da Marco Polo in poi e risulta una sintesi di tutte le più moderne informazioni dell'area. Taiwan viene mappata per la prima volta, indicata come I. Fermosa. Oltre all'India ed all'arcipelago indonesiano citati nel titolo, la carta rappresenta anche le regioni dell'estremo oriente, compresi Cina e Giappone. Bel cartiglio decorato in basso a sinistra e stemma nobiliare nell'angolo superiore dello stesso lato. Testo italiano al verso.Ottime condizioni generali, con piccolo rinforzo vicino allo stemma portoghese, visibile al verso. Ort 166; (Koeman Atlantes Neerlandici III): 48; Van den Broecke, 166 Copper engraving, original color, mm 355x500, from "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", the first modern atlas of the world, published from 1570 to 1612. One of the earliest maps of Southeast Asia which bears title in a decorative strapwork cartouche, coat of arms of Portugal, seas stippled and decorated with ships, whales and mermaids. The privilegium is found in the lower right corner.Based on Mercator's world map of 1589 and Portuguese sources, the map includes information drawn from Marco Polo. The East Indies are a group of islands with Java and Borneo particularly misshapen. Taiwan is mapped for the first time as I. Fermosa in the 'tail' of a kite-shaped Japan. It is also a synthesis of the best available information on Southeast Asia and the East Indian Islands and is a 'milestone' in the cartography of Southeast Asia and the East Indian Islands bringing the knowledge of that time to a very wide audience through the numerous editions of the Theatrum. Very good condition with a minor china reinforcement near portuguese coat of arms

Spot (approximately 1 inch circle) to lower left image, otherwise very good condition. From Emanuel Sweert's Florilegium, first issued in 1612, with five subsequent editions. "Emanuel Sweert, a Dutch florist, was at one time Praefectus of the gardens of the Emperor Rudolf II, and it was at his behest that the work was produced. Although it did not contain prices it also served as a catalogue of plants offered for sale by Sweert at the Frankfurt Fair." (de Belder catalogue). The intaglio processes of engraving and etching had only recently been applied to botanical illustration, allowing for a finer, more spontaneous line than the woodcut. This is a lovely image of crocus bulbs.

        The Bible, That Is, The Holy Scriptures Contained in the Old & New Testament

      Robert Barker, 1612, Hardcover (Quarter Leather), Book Condition: Good Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket, Early Edition. The Bible, That Is, The Holy Scriptures Contained in the Old & New Testament, including a 34-page genealogy by John Speed. London: Robert Barker, 1612. Bound with The Whole Booke of Psalmes Collected Into English Meeter, London: Printed for the Companie of Stationers, 1618. Folio, pp. 34 (genealogy), ff. 453, 135, [7], then pp. 100 (psalms) -- occasional misnumbering, but complete. Gray-brown cloth boards quarter-bound in brown calf with brown morocco label on spine, six raised bands, woodcuts, maps. This is a later binding, probably 19th century, with added endpapers and reinforced title page. Leaves measure about 32x20cm with a 3cm lower margin and 1.5-2cm upper and fore margins. Text is double-column, 64 lines, Roman. Provenance: The supplied free front endpaper (loose) preserves a handwritten index of illustrations, and the front pastedown likewise preserves a 1675 gift inscription to John Simon Esq. and also includes the art nouveau medical bookplate of Sir John Simon, the 19th-century pathologist who was Britain's chief medical officer from 1855 to 1876. Sir John here wrote his instructions on how this book was to be disposed of, presumably after his death. A blank page at the start of the Apocrypha shows a holograph list of 17th-century births, surnames illegible to me. Darlow & Moule 241 identifies this version as "a close reprint of the folio edition of 1607." The illustrated title page has no date, but the NT title page is dated 1611 with a colophon date of 1612. (D&M 222, for the 1607 edition, contains a detailed description of the illustrated title page, which exactly matches that shown with this listing.)

        Mythologie c'est à dire, Explication des Fables, contenant les Genealogies des Dieux, les ceremonies de leurs Sacrifices ; Leurs Gestes, adventures, amours, Et presq tous les preceptes de la Philosophie naturelle & moralle. Extraite du Latin de Noel Le Comte, reveuë, & augmentée de nouveau, & illustrée de figures. par L. de Montlyard.

      A Lion chez Paul Frellon 1612 1 vol. in-4 de (10)-1120-(26) pp., maroquin citron, dos orné à cinq nerfs, triple filet doré sur les plats, pièces de titre en maroquin rouge, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Titre gravé par L Gaultier et 71 gravures sur bois dans le texte. Nouvelle édition (la première illustrée) d'un des plus importants traités légués par la Renaissance sur la mythologie gréco-latine, établie sur l'originale de 1567 (Venise). Son auteur était un humaniste italien (mort en 1582), dont la pureté de la langue et l'élégance du style furent très appréciées à son époque. Les Dix livres de la Mythologie, ou explication des Fables sont une immense mosaïque de citations antiques extraites des poètes tragiques et des philosophes, abondamment commentées. Il est à noter que l'auteur glisse dans certaines entrées du texte quelques considérations alchimiques sur la mythologie antique, et cela en parfait accord avec ce que prônaient les Philosophes Hermétiques et que validera brillamment Dom Pernety au XVIIIe dans son Dictionnaire mytho-hermétique dans lequel on trouve les allégories fabuleuses des poètes, les métaphores, les énigmes et les termes barbares des philosophes hermétiques expliqués et Les Fables égyptiennes et grecques dévoilées & réduites au même principe avec une explication des hiéroglyphes et de la guerre de Troie. Le succès de l'oeuvre à la fin du siècle est également attesté par les éditions successives de la traduction française de Jean de Montlyard : publiée une première fois à Lyon en 1600, elle sera rééditée en 1604, 1607 et 1612. Dans un long avis de l'imprimeur, L'Imprimeur au bening Lecteur, Paul Frellon se plaint d'une édition pirate imprimée à Rouen en 1611. Baudrier V, 276 (pour l'édition datée 1600). Bel exemplaire.

        Peruviae auriferae regionis typus Didaco Mendezio auctore (with:) La Florida Auctore Hieron. Chiaves-Guastecan Reg

      Antwerp 1612 - Copper engraving,original color, mm 340x470; italian text and number 9 on verso. From the 1612 edition. Good condition in very early color, partly oxidated like usual for the italian 1612 edition.A very early map of the Spanish empire in the New World, made up of 3 maps on one sheet, the largest showing central and South America (Peru); the second showing Florida and the southeast; and the third, Guastecan (Huasteca), a northeastern province of Mexico. The map of Florida is important as it is the first regional map of the southeastern section of North America.The map revealed little information on the interior of North America, but the details presented have been definitely linked with known features. The village of Aijx undoubtedly became known to the Spaniards as Ais, and the Mississippi, though distorted, appeared as the R.de S.Spiritu , the name given it by early Spanish explorers. Tascalisa lies on the map as closely as possible to where today's Tuscaloosa, Alabama is. The Chaves map published by Ortelius was, therefore, one of the earliest printed maps of the territory based on actual observations. Burden 57: "(La Florida) is one of the very few maps printed in the sixteenth century that was based upon original Spanish sources. They were very protective of their knowledge of the Americas, a considerable source of their wealth. The author of this map, Geronimo de Chaves, was the Cosmographer Royal to Philip II of Spain". The map of Florida is considered to be the first to show any interior detail of the present day United States, and was set the standard for mapping the region for the century to come. V.d.Broecke 15; Martin & Martin: Maps of Texas and the Southwest: The first printed map of the Florida region; Cumming, Southeast, p.12,#5.

Bède, dit le Vénérable (en latin : Beda Venerabilis, en anglais : Bede, prononcé /bi:d/), est un moine et lettré anglo-saxon né vers 672/673 en Northumbrie et mort le 26 mai 735. Son uvre la plus célèbre, l'Histoire ecclésiastique du peuple anglais, lui a valu le surnom de « Père de l'histoire anglaise ». Il est également linguiste et traducteur, et ses traductions des uvres grecques et latines des premiers pères de l'Église ont joué un rôle important dans le développement du christianisme en Angleterre. En 1899, Bède est proclamé docteur de l'Église par le pape Léon XIII ; il est à ce jour le seul natif de Grande-Bretagne à avoir été ainsi honoré, mais il est notamment connu comme fondateur du comput (science de la datation et du calcul de la date des fêtes mobiles dans la religion chrétienne) et a été le premier à introduire un système de datation prenant comme référence la naissance du Christ.

        Assunzione della Maddalena

      1612. Acquaforte e bulino, 1612, firmata e datata in lastra in basso. Da un soggetto di Luca Cambiaso. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Raffaello Schiaminossi fa parte della folta schiera di artisti nativi del piccolo borgo di San Sepolcro. Membro della corporazione fiorentina dei pittori a partire dal 1596, si dedica con successo all'incisione, traducendo ed interpretando a stampa disegni di Ventura Salimbeni, Federico Barocci, Paolo Veronese ed appunto Luca Cambiaso. La sua arte incisoria è del tutto particolare ed innovativa, caratterizzata dal forte uso del chiaroscuro, realizzato attraverso l'uso di una fitta serie di linee incrociate, alternate ad aree intagliate delicatamente. Uno dei migliori lavori dell'artista. Etching and engraving, 1612, signed and dated in the plate at the bottom. After Luca Cambiaso. Magnificent proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the copperplate, in excellent condition. Raffaello Schiaminossi is part of the large group of native artists of the small village of St. Seplocro. Member of the Guild of Florentine painters from 1596, he devoted himself with success incision, translating and interpreting printed design by Ventura Salimbeni, Federico Barocci, Paolo Veronese and precisely Luca Cambiaso. Its art of engraving is quite special and innovative, characterized by strong use of chiaroscuro, realized through the use of a dense series of crossed lines, alternating with areas carved gently. One of the best works of the artist. Bartsch XVII, p. 232, 91. Dimensioni 197x280.

      London: Robert Barker, 1612. [1],14pp. with woodcut vignettes above and below title and at end of text, woodcut royal arms above beginning of text on p.1. Small quarto. 20th-century boards, gilt leather label. Large illustrated bookplate of legendary bookseller John Howell on front pastedown. Titlepage slightly soiled, with a few ink spots. Outer corners of text block trimmed diagonally. Light dampstaining and soiling. Contemporary ink inscriptions (including proper names) in margins of pp.6, 7, 14 (some smeared at an early date). Additional contemporary inscriptions on p.14 in blank spaces between printed text. Lacking leaf A1 (recto blank except for signature mark within vignette, verso blank) and leaf C2 (recto and verso blank). A good copy, housed in a half- morocco slipcase, spine gilt (erroneously noting "inscription by Francis Bacon"). A royal decree issued by King James I confirming that baronets, holders of hereditary titles awarded by the crown, were to be ranked below the younger sons of Viscounts and Barons. The practice of awarding baronetcies was introduced by James I in 1611, and this decree was issued in response to a "controversie which did arise upon an inference only out of some dark words contained in the Letters Patents of the said Baronets." This copy has numerous contemporary ink inscriptions in English on three pages, some of which were smeared (and are now mostly illegible) at an early date. The remainder of the inscriptions include proper names, single words, and partial sentences. STC 9234. ESTC S105542.

        LA PASSIONE di N.S Giesu Christo, d'Alberto Durero di Norimberga. Sposta in ottaua rima dal R.P.D. Mauritio Moro, Canon. della Congr. di S.Giorgio in Alega. In Venetia, appresso Daniel Bissuccio, M.DC.XII. (1612)

      Bissuccio, 1612. in - 4 (mm 200x145), 42 ff. n.n. Precede il testo la dedica all'Arciduca Ferdinando d'Austria di Donato Rasciotti e di M. Moro. Ritratto di Dürer a mezzo busto in tondo inciso in rame nel 1553 sul foglio di titolo. Esemplare accuratamente rinfrescato in legatura francese del ?900 d'amatore in pieno marocchino blu, dorso a nervi con titolo oro, tagli dor., dent.int. - Al recto di 36 fogli sono impressi i 36 legni originali del 1507 e 1510 di Albrecht Dürer (1471 - 1528) della serie di silografie della "Piccola Passione", tra i capolavori del grande artista, tutti firmati col monogramma AD. La serie di 36 incisioni venne impressa nel 1507 in tiratura di prova senza testo; quindi dal 1511 in poi con testo latino di Chelidonius Benedictus (latinizzazione del nome di Schwalbe). La presente è la prima edizione con testo in italiano. Il componimento poetico del Moro, canonico di San Giorgio in Alega, "..che diletta, e move à pietade ne' leggiadri versi" (dalla dedica del Rasciotti), ebbe notevole successo. La figura dell'Uomo di Dolore, sul foglio di titolo della serie, apparve solamente in alcune tirature di prova attorno al 1511. Nelle successive rare impressioni non è presente, mentre è impressa due volte la matrice del Cristo davanti a Pilato; altra variante riguarda la scena di Cristo negli Orti degli Ulivi: pur mantenendo la medesima iconografia Dürer preferì reincidere il soggetto. Esemplare assai bello e fresco di questa tiratura del 1612 di uno dei capolavori grafici del XVI secolo e di tutti i tempi.

        DE NOUO ORBE. OR, THE HISTORIE OF THE WEST INDIES, CONTAYNING THE ACTES AND ADUENTURES OF THE SPANYARDS, WHICH HAVE CONQUERED AND PEOPLED THOSE COUNTRIES...Written by Peter Martyr...WHEREOF THREE HAUE BEEN FORMERLY TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH. BY R. EDEN, WHEREUNTO THE OTHER FIUE, ARE NEWLY ADDED BY THE INDUSTRIE, AND PAINEFULL TRAUAILE OF M. LOK, GENT

      London: Printed for Thomas Adams, 1612. 5 preliminary leaves (lacks blank A1, A2-A4 in expert facsimile), 318 numbered leaves (some leaves misnumbered). Small quarto. Modern full calf, gilt, boards ruled in gilt and stamped with gilt decorations, spine with raised bands and gilt decoration, leather label. Some minor internal dampstaining, else very good. The first complete English translation of the eight books of Spanish historian Peter Martyr's DE NOUO ORBE..., one of the most important of all sources for the history of the discovery and conquest of the New World, from Columbus through the conquest of Mexico by Cortes. Martyr, an official in the Spanish royal court, was present when Columbus returned in 1493, and was actively involved on the highest level of administration in New World affairs for the rest of his life. Herein are the best contemporary accounts of all of the earliest explorations of the Caribbean, northern South America, and Mexico. This is thus the first English text in complete form of one of the most important pieces of all early Americana. Martyr published his history beginning in 1511, and separately and cumulatively until his death. The first complete edition of all eight books was issued in Latin in 1532. Martyr's work was first translated into English in 1555 by Richard Eden as THE DECADES OF THE NEWE WORLDE. That was the first major work in English about the New World, but it only included the first three of Martyr's books. The full translation of all eight books, by Michael Lok, was not issued until 1612, when the present volume was issued by the printer, Thomas Adams. An English Americanum of the greatest importance. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 612/3. CHURCH 358. SABIN 1563. STC 65O. ARENTS 6. JCB (3)II:86.

        HIERACOSOPHION. Rei Accipitrariae scriptores nunc primun editi. Accessit KYNOSOPHION Liber de Cura canum ex Biblioth. Regia Medicea. Lutetiae, Sumptibus Hieronymi Drovart 1612.

      1612. In 4° (17,5x25,7), bella leg. amatoriale non coeva in mz. pelle marrone - scuro, dorso a cinque nervi con titoli e fregi negli scomparti impressi in oro, piatti e sguardie marmorizzate, bel ex - libris del celebre falconiere e ornitologo James Edmund Harting, pp,(16) - 278 - (28) - 211 - 120, tagli rossi, frontespizio stampato in rosso e nero, con fregio tipografico xilogr., leggermente brunito nel marg. sup. destro, qualche capilettera, testatine e finalini xilogr., testo in greco, latino e catalano. Astuccio in cart. marmorizzato ben conservato. Splendido esemplare di opera rarissima. Brunet V, 245. Ceresoli, p.304. Harting, 314 ("A work now of some rarity and value"). Kreysig, p. 151. Schwerdt II, p.136. Souhart, pp.670 - 671.Thiébaud, p.499 - 500. Importante e assai rara raccolta di opere sulla falconeria e la cinologia, pubblicata dal bibliotecario del re di Francia Luigi XIII: Nicolas Rigault, la cui dedicatoria appare nelle prime pagine del libro: Rigault era pure esecutore testamentario del celebre falconiere Jacques Auguste de Thou. Il lavoro venne stampato da Claude Morel, insieme ad altri due librai (H.Drovart e S.Cramoisy). Sul mercato apparvero così varie ediz. con i nomi ora dell'uno, ora dell'altro libraio. Il nostro esemplare reca il nome del libraio Drovart. Secondo Brunet e Souhart, l'ediz. stampata da Cramoisy ha la carta più bianca e resistente Si è riscontrato una certa discrepanza nelle pagine e nell'ordine delle opere nelle tre edizioni. Kreysig segnala una edizione in 8° del 1758, pubblicata a Basilea e una parigina in 4° del 1619, che Thiébaud giudica inesistenti. Le opere riunite sono undici, le prime due in greco, entrambe dedicate agli uccelli da rapina e scritte da Demetrio Costantinopolitano detto Pepagomeno, appaiono stampate per la prima volta. Seguono altre opere sul medesimo soggeto (importante un poema latino di J.A. de Thou), una in greco sulla cura dei cani da caccia, attribuita a Femone o al già citato Pepagomeno, una epistola in catalano (nell'opera in questione c'è anche la traduzione latina) su come nutrire e curare gli uccelli da rapina, impiegati per la caccia (la lettera è di Simmaco, considerata apocrifa, è il più antico trattato di falconeria in lingua volgare) ecc. Per una dettagliata analisi di tutte le 11 opere si rimanda in particolare ai repertori di Ceresoli e Thiébaud.

        In Cabalam introductio quaedam.. - (Segue:) Polemonis Physionomia e graeco in latinum versa.. - (Segue:) Fisonomia di Polemone..fatta volgare.. - (Segue:) Oratio..de laudibus D. Hyacinthi.. Mutinae, apud Iulianum Cassianum (poi: Offic. Typogr. Io. Mariae de Verdis), MDCXII (Modena 1612)

      Cassiani G. - Verdi G.M, 1612. 4 opere in 1 vol., pp. 39, (1); 106, (2 bianche); 80; 105, (1); leg. antica in p. pergam. rigida., titolo "Fisonomia di Polemone" in oro al dorso. Con numerose belle iniziali silogr., armi degli Estensi sul titolo di ciascuna opera, impresa tipogr. del Cassiani in fine alla prima ed altra grande di G.M. Verdi in fine alla quarta opera. Prima edizione di tutte le quattro opere. Il primo testo è un'introduzione all'alchimia considerata una parte della magia naturale. L'autore (1562 - 1611), che in diversi passi trae spunto da Pico della Mirandola, fornisce le chiavi essenziali per iniziare lo studio dell'antica scienza ebraica secondo le concezioni del neoplatonismo. L' opera di Antonios Polemon (88 - 144 d.C., di Laodicea, nella Caria, sofista greco) sulla fisiognomica è tradotta, nel primo caso, in latino dal Montecuccoli, nel secondo, in italiano da suo fratello Francesco; ed seguita dalle "Assertiones", un compendio in brevi sentenze della filosofia dell'umanesimo legata al neoplatonismo. L'ultima opera è un'Orazione panegirica in onore di S.Giacinto. Importante assieme di opere (le prime tre) dedicate alla cabala, all'esoterismo e fisiognomica, reperibili anche singolarmente (ma l'opuscolo "In cabalam introductio", citato da Thorndike, non è stato riscontrato in alcun altro repertorio). Buon esempl. di rare edizioni modenesi
